Wine Review: This winery was a new discovery for me on my recent trip to CA. Their 2007 Pinot was very well received. It opens with a pleasant mild spicy raspberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and nicely balanced between its spicy fruit and acidity. The flavor is a tasty spicy raspberry with hints of blueberry and strawberry mixed in. The finish is dry and its well managed tannins drift away nicely. This wine would pair well with pork tenderloin. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: "This wine has an elegant, pure fruit forward style, with brilliant intensity, spice and rich Bing cherry, but with a luxurious density in the mouthfeel. The hallmark of this vintage is the great palate appeal, the fruit coupled with the velvety texture make this a superlative example of Russian River Valley Pinot." - Don Van Staaveren, Winemaker
